Just came across this news article and thought you all might like to see it. Quite funny.
figures on registration in Iceland’s religious institutions have yielded some interesting results.
Vísir recently compiled data that they requested from the National Registry on the numbers of people registered with different religious institutions in Iceland. Unsurprisingly, the largest number of registrants belonged to the national church; some 240,395 Icelanders out of the total population of 331,244 belong to the church, either by voluntary registration or from being autoregistered at birth.
Where other religious institutions are concerned, one of the more interesting data points is that there are exactly 666 registered members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Iceland.
